Winter Fest is on NOW - heaps to do and see there
The City of Perth will be running a festival which has already begun and will now run until 21st July 2019.
There will be heaps of interesting free events and things to do here, ranging from art installations and school holiday activities to wonderful make-believe snowfall in the malls. As well as all this, there will be some live ice carving.
This year, the heart of the city at Forrest Place will be transformed as Swiss artist Dan Acher brings the Northern Lights to Perth with Borealis. This is a unique light installation that beams high power lasers through particle clouds to make it look like a fascinating natural phenomenon! Borealis has previously been showed and seen at the Tower of London.
If you are a family looking to entertain the children these holidays, there will be Water Wildlife Up Close in Carillon City. This will give all the little scientists the chance to meet and learn all about sharks, sea stars, urchins, frogs and other sea creatures.
The City of Perth Deputy Chair Commissioner Gaye McMath said Winter Fest would create a "vibrant, culturally-inspired city with something for everyone."

This will be a winter festival that will be great to get the children out and about and give them something very interesting to do during the school holidays. Winter is a great season as there are events like this which are so much fun and entertaining for all ages.
There will programs like the following:
Libby Hammer presents The Adventures of Charlie, Dizzy and Stella. This is a series of poems penned by local playwright Melanie Bainbridge. It features three delightful and adventurous characters based on the names of famous jazz musicians
The musical score is by Libby Hammer, and features excerpts of standard jazz melodies that are in the story in the style of Prokofiev's Peter And The Wolf. As well as featuring projected story illustrations by Libby's daughter Genevieve, this show provides the chance for children to sing and copy the simple melodies while following along on an exciting adventure by the jazzy crew of three.
